Quantum of the Seas is taking shape at MEYER WERFT shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Royal Caribbean’s newest ship that will feature more industry firsts such as Ripcord by iFly and North Star is looking more and more like the innovative architectural designs every day.
The official keel-laying for Quantum of the Seas was celebrated on August 2nd. Prior to this the first steel-cutting for her sister ship Anthem of the Seas took place at the yard.
The Quantum class of ships will take a dramatic leap forward, introducing more game-changing “firsts at sea” such as a skydiving experience, a thrilling adventure that transports guests more than 300 feet in the air on a breathtaking journey; cutting-edge transformative venues including the largest indoor sports and entertainment complex at sea with bumper cars, roller skating and more; and the cruise line’s largest and most advanced staterooms ever.
Quantum class will debut in fall 2014 with Quantum of the Seas, followed by her sister-ship Anthem of the Seas in spring 2015. Quantum ships span 18 decks, encompass 167,800 gross registered tons, carry 4,180 guests at double occupancy and feature 2,090 staterooms.
